Pros: interesting industry
Cons: poor work environment, poor management, low recognition, no incentives, poor employee moral
I know what you're thinking... It's Remington, it's got to be great! Well, that is very far from the truth!
Remington may have one of the lowest moral work forces that I have come across. I would guess that 80-90% of the current employees are all desperately searching for jobs. Most employees are dissatisfied with their compensation, hours worked, lack of appreciation or recognition, management, the product itself or, very possibly, all the above.
As a Remington Employee, you are expected to be available at any time to work and you're expected to work large amounts of overtime. And your lost personal time, well, it is just that. Remington has no employee incentive program in place. So, you work your tail off only to help Remington make more millions of dollars. Remington continues to give low annual merit increases that are well below cost of living increase.
Management is very deceiving in making you think that they care and that they are listening to your concerns... but, you learn quickly that is not the case.
The product is definitely cool and interesting but that wears off pretty quick. Pretty soon you get tired of producing mediocre products that are rushed to make a quick buck. The company likes to think they are doing you a favor by working for Remington and you should feel privileged to work for them. That is not the case.
